Apparently Mewtwo and NewMew are interchangeable on the movie posters. It might not be a new form, but a whole new concept new to Pokemon like sequels or Rotation Battles.
EDIT: Can we please add an "Other" button on the poll?
Edit: Assuming it IS a forme and not a whole new thing.
So...from another thread, someone suggested that the form change (assuming it is a form change) may have something to do with that Berserk Gene from Gen II. I kinda like that idea. What do you guys think?
I agree that a lot of evidence is pointing to a forme, as opposed to a new Pokemon, however, since I am hoping for this to be a new Pokemon, I'll say the points in why it still has a chance of being a new Pokemon.
- People argue that this Pokemon replaces Mewtwo in the poster, but that is an assumption. What if it were suppose to be two different posters?? The poster was leaked before the Pokemon was announced, therefore nobody knows the real reason yet as to why one has Mewtwo while the other has this new Pokemon.
- Some sites reference this Pokemon as it being related to Mewtwo in some way. If this Pokemon is correctly labelled as being related to Mewtwo, then it would be a New Pokemon. A forme wouldn't be related to Mewtwo, because the new forme would BE Mewtwo
-I agree that it is likely the term 'eclaire forme' is real considering it is mentioned by the same person who leaked the poster, however, that is still only an assumption that he is in fact correct. There aren't any guarantees yet.
Until this Pokemon identity has been realised, my hopes are on a new Pokemon. I still am not fond of the idea of Mewtwo suddenly getting a new forme seventeen years later. However, if it is a new forme, I am sure I'll be accepting towards it. I am glad of its design, I think it looks great.
That being said, I'm now imagining there being two movies ala M14, one with Mewtwo and one with Newtwo. ._.
Aye yi yi... To be honest, it could be either one; a new Pokemon, or a new form for Mewtwo. The design looks really cool, as cool as Mewtwo himself! There is no way that the new Pokemon wouldn't be closely related to Mewtwo if it looked that cool.
Also, I think this might be the same deal as with Shaymin's Sky Form, because it looks kinda similar, but not so much as you can totally tell it's a new form. Shaymin Sky Form doesn't exactly look very closely related to Shaymin Land Form, does it?
If it's a new Pokemon, then I'm 99% sure that it's going to be called Mewthree.
As of now, there's really no telling whether it could be a new Pokemon or a forme. Nintendo's press release on it seems to indicate that it might be a new specie but still closely related to Mew and Mewtwo. However with the way the upcoming movie is, it could also very well be a new forme of Mewtwo. It could go either way.
I however do hope that it is a new specie rather than a forme. A new specie would be a little more tolerable for me, as Mewtwo simply does not need a new forme. However I still cannot say for certain either way, and the most I can do is hope. Really hoping that the next CoroCoro sheds more light on this creature.
You know what would be an epic plot twist?
It's an alt Mew forme. We've all been trolled.
They're definitely doing a good job at keeping a lot of things up in the air with all the info they release, we barely know anything about any of the Pokémon they've released so far other than name and appearance.
I'm really hoping NewMew is either Rocket's second clone or Plasma's clone, but it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if it was a form (especially since almost every gen V legendary has one or more alternate forms, they've gone form-crazy). Based on the trailer, NewMew could be a clone made to take on the small Genesect army because Mewtwo wasn't enough, maybe
It will most likely be a new form of Mewtwo just because of all of similarities it will be interesting to see though once it comes out
i really like the idea that Mewtwo consciously created NewMew as it's progeny/partner/child/sidekick and it technically is also a Mewtwo but in an alternate forme [like the wormadam forms someone mentioned. same poke, different characteristics.] the "real/awakened" Mewtwo is a Mommy.
As much as would like for this to be a new pokemon, it's fairly obvious that it's a new form. I'm just really hoping that it's a second attempt at cloning Mew, as opposed to something that Mewtwo changes into, since I'm not the biggest fans of forms. I feel that putting that spin on it would actually make it somewhat interesting, to me anyways.
I've seen a lot of hate for this and how "stupid" it looks. Personally, I think it looks awesome. I'm glad they've revisited an old favourite and not simply left it in the dust. Coming from the era of Pokégods [Mewthree, Pikablu, Charcolt, etc], I'm hoping for it to be a new Pokémon [so I can say I got a Mewthree finally!], but an alt-forme won't surprise me and is just as good.
I have a theory that I haven't seen yet. I think that this new pokemon is an evolution of Mew. Take a look at the gameplay video and the wide range of moves that it has. Perhaps like Mew (and unlike Mewtwo) it can learn every TM and HM. This is how Mew was meant to be, how it was meant to evolve, as opposed to the hack that is Mewtwo.
